Friday June 24th

Annalisa and Son, Mike furnished donuts this morning.

We do not have any cards to sign except a card for the Farleys who are really home sick for the park. I an sure it's a difficult adjustment for them. Their Sons Dave and Jeff have been here sorting thru and packing things up getting the mobile ready to sell.Also Daves Son Terry was here helping his Dad and Daves wife Terry flew in. Dave is really going to miss coming down here to visit his folks, he attended quite a few functions that the folks went to and met and enjoyied a lot of people.
They are ready to leave as I write this. I had a walk thru of their mobile and it is absolutely gorgious, They have a realtor who will sell it for Farleys, her name is Lela Mary Weber from Winter Texan Home Donna,TX. All you need is your clothes and groceries.

We had a great time on our trip to Vegas, here's a few pictures on the way there. We stayed at Sam's town out on Boulder Hwy. They have a water show where water sprays up to music and when it gets dark they have colored lights, followed by a lazer show.




the big walk thru park has lots of trees and flowers and animated animals, a brook runs thru it also, and the motel a vast majority of the motel rooms are on the park side, so you can look down on the park.

Fred Mohrman's wife Camilla passed away June 23rd. They were from Wisconsin, Wintered here in our park from around 2002 to 2010,at #153

That's it for now

Hope you are all having a wonderful Summer.

Rain

Yes we have had some rain but not like some parts of the Valley...we got close to 2 inches Tuesday night and Thursday we got just a little more, but there's rain in todays forecast and chances for rain for the next 6 days. As far as the heavy rain Tuesday night, we didnt have any ponding in the yards and all streets were clear of water.The news some times exagerates the weather here!!Tuesday night Chimney Park got high winds that tore up alot of mobiles and park models, trees and power lines down, also quite a few folks, ( more in the Western part of the Valley) had power outages, we did not get any outages.Thursday evening we got a big storm with 30 to 40 mph winds, pea size hail for a few seconds and dumped an inch or two of rain,today we have had a beautiful sunny morning like yesterday but expecting more rain later this afternoon. Also calling for rain the next several days. The grass sure is growing and green LOL



This morning Janel Baker provided the donuts. Helen just put up a card to sign for Arlene Lange #218. She had knee surgery. They are from South Dakota

I said I would post a picture of the Century plant at the corner (Maurer/Thomson home)


It's starting to die off


We have quite a few "Moss Rose"in pots in the hangers Bobby made, I just love those colorful little flowers, and I espeically like my "Blue Daze" plant



The "Xhoria" (sp.)in front of the office is just gorgious


Has anyone ever grown "okra" Bobby loves it just boiled with butter, salt, & pepper on it, I have now learned to like it. You have to pick every day, when it's and inch long one day it's 4 inches long the next day and if you don't get it picked it will grow really long, like 6 or more inches, it's no good then, it's very tough, we have given several bunches away as we can't eat it fast enough. Here's a picture of the Okra, we have another few plants beside these


Well, hope everyone is enjoying their Summer and is happy and well!!!!
